In the United Kingdom, E.ON currently operates Scroby Sands, a 60 megawatt offshore wind farm which entered service in 2004. In Germany and Denmark, E.ON is involved in a number of pilot projects for offshore wind farms. Here, however, substantial development work remains to be done because such facilities have to be sited further offshore at greater water depths.
E.ON CEO Wulf Bernotat said: "A secure, economical, and environmentally friendly energy supply is of decisive importance for us. With Robin Rigg we're making an important contribution to reducing carbon-dioxide emissions. The project is also in line with our strategy to further increase the share of the E.ON Group's total generation-currently at about 11 percent-that comes from renewable sources."
